Iluminada Alicea was born on 11/18/1933 in Lares, Puerto Rico and was the only daughter out of seven children to her Father Manuel Galarza and her Mother Benita Mendez. Iluminada was married to her husband Ricardo Alicea for the better part of sixty years and together they bore six amazing children Linda, Richard, Janet, Beatriz, Alfredo, and Mary. Iluminada had ten grandchildren and twenty great grandchildren. Iluminada had a love for playing Dominos, Rummy 2000, Briska, Tuti and Trouble. Although she had a love for playing, she had a hatred for loosing and in a comical way would express her feelings and everyone would have a great laugh. Putting her competitive nature aside, Iluminada was a loved sister, loving mother to her children an amazing grandmother to her grandchildren and endearing great grandmother to her great-grandchildren. Iluminada was the shining light in our family and truly loved when family and friends got together for holidays, birthdays, Barbeques, and other gatherings. This is a tremendous loss but Iluminada would not want us to shed tears and grief. Iluminada’s life is to be celebrated with joy, laughter and most importantly, family and friends. Please come and join us in celebration, remembrance, and honor of our beloved Iluminada Alicea.

Yum! Every time I came to visit, it never failed, you had it ready for me when I arrived. Your maizena was amazing and even though others tried to replicate it, it will never taste like yours.
